First Snow

You should have seen the three of us yesterday.

As we drove up Mill Creek Canyon, our excitement was impossible to contain as we saw the snow get deeper and deeper as we climbed in altitude. 
Landon and I were giddy as we clicked our toes into our cross country skies and headed into the woods. Duvick was running and pouncing through the snow; if he could talk, i think he would have been singing. We're just a snow family, is all.


Can you just see how beautiful our first snow is? I love it!

 Every year, our first snow in the Rockies is spectacular. As the sun breaks through the clouds, the world is not only twinkling with the snow, but in places it is golden as the leaves are glistening-wet and  reflecting the light. It's incredible to experience the snow with the fall foliage. I LOVE IT!

Although, you can see it's hard on the trees to bear so much weight as the snow clings to the leaves.

We are so fortunate to have a ski-able snow so early in the year!

SO BEAUTIFUL! I wish I lived there. I would do everything you guys do. But I think I am going to Georgia Tech on a Volleyball Scolarship. I like the volleyball there, not the school, but I am willing to make a sacrifice for my educational dreams.

Wow, that is really pretty! But I'm so not a snow person. SO I'm glad there are people like y'all who love it a lot. :)
